While most Bollywood actors tend to head overseas to bring in 2014 away from the media glare, Salman Khan celebrated New Year’s Eve with a group of close friends (including Sonakshi Sinha and Elli Avram) at his farmhouse in Panvel.
However, on that day, Salman had a surprise visitor. Hrithik Roshan, who has always shared a rocky equation with Salman, blowing hot and cold at times, drove down to Panvel for a couple of hours on December 31. “He left at around 8.30 pm. So he didn’t bring in the New Year with him,” says an eyewitness. The purpose of Hrithik’s visit is still unclear.
News of a tiff between the actors first surfaced when Salman allegedly made a derogatory comment about Hrithik’s film, Guzaarish (2010). Then, a few weeks ago, they made headlines again when Hrithik — unlike his Krrish 3 (2013) co-stars Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut — didn’t appear on the show, Bigg Boss that is hosted by Salman.
Another set of reports claimed that it was Salman who was not keen on having him promote his film on the show. But a few days later, Hrithik told us that all is well between them. “Salman has really added and contributed to my life in many ways,” he had said.
After his meeting with Salman, Hrithik brought in 2014 at his friends Goldie Behl and Sonali Bendre’s house. Despite repeated attempts, Hrithik couldn’t be reached for a comment.
